FC Barcelona closer to the title

FC Barcelona is looking to inch closer to the La Liga title with a win against CA Osausna, who is a finalist in Copa del Rey. Coming into this game, these two teams are actually from different results. Barcelona were fortunate to bounce back from their shocking 2-1 loss against Rayo Vallecano. Fortunately for them, they were able to win against Real Betis on their last match in a 4-0 win. Osasuna on the other hand is from a 2-0 defeat against Real Sociedad, which made them hungry for more wins in the contest. This meeting will be on May 3, 2023, at 1:30 AM (GMT+8), with Barcelona playing as hosts.

These two teams have met for several times in the league already. However, for their last 41 meetings, it was the hosts who has a good record. They won 25 of those matches, while the visitors only have six victories. When it comes to the league table, it is also the hosts who is in a better place. In fact, they stay at the top of the league table with a safe lead from the team at the second. They are so far the favorites to win the title, considering their dominance all season, which is not impossible. The visitors on the other hand are a team who are in a safe place in the contest as well. They are at the ninth in the league table, but a win here is huge for them.

Barcelona is currently at the top of the league table with 79 points across their names. Barcelona were able to establish themselves at the top of the league table, having a huge lead against the team at the second. They have stepped up excellently in their domestic league, which is why their dominance in the league is not surprising. In fact, they showed their dominance again in the league with a 4-0 win against Real Betis. Coming into this game, Barcelona is hopeful to achieve the same result in this match. This is not impossible though as Barcelona have been really impressive in the league. In fact, they have been stellar in their recent matches, which will give them more wins.

Only Sergi Roberto is an absentee for Barcelona due to his hamstring injury, and is aiming to be able to recover before the season ends. Since he is the only one unavailable here, Barcelona are very confident that they could win here.

Osasuna on the other hand sits at the ninth of the league table with 44 points across their names. A win in this match would bring Osasuna at the eighth with 47 points, which is huge for them. However, in order to do so, Osasuna needs to address their issues such as their inconsistencies this season. In fact, they are coming from a 2-0 loss against Real Sociedad on their last meeting. With that, they need to work harder for them to be able to win this match, and bounce back from that devastating loss. It is possible though, as Osasuna is capable of upsetting giant teams in the contest. In fact, they were able to put Barcelona into trouble in the past. This is the record they aim to repeat in this meeting, as they aim for a better record.

Darko Brasanac remains to be unavailable in this match, as he is still dealing with his knee injury. David Garcia on the other hand is a doubt in this game following his muscular issues.
